The Blue Monkey Restaurant in North Catasauqua drew quite a crowd Thursday night all in the name of charity.

A fundraiser benefited Matt Globosits and his diabetic alert dog Zuker.

Matt's family needs help reaching their fundraising goal to help pay for Zuker.

The 4-month old puppy is trained to detect Matt's blood sugar levels which is crucial for this 15-year-old with Type 1 diabetes.

The cost for such an amazing pup is $25,000.
